Defective Airbag Attorneys In Houston
Product failures have led to serious injuries and recalls
You trust the airbags in your vehicle to work properly and protect you in an accident. Unfortunately, some defective airbags do the exact opposite. Instead, you or a loved one can sustain a serious injury caused by your vehicle’s airbag. When that happens, it’s critical that you take strong legal action against the company that caused your injury.
Our lawyers at Smith & Hassler can help you every step of the way. Our attorneys have more than 30 years of experience handling complex product liability cases in Houston and throughout Texas. We know the law and know how it relates to defective airbag injuries. We will work tirelessly for you and demand justice.
Why do airbag failures happen?
Injuries caused by defective airbags happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common reasons why airbags can cause serious injuries include:
- Design defect
- Manufacturing defect
- Improperly installed
Many injuries involving defective airbags involved one manufacturer, Takata. As a result, the Takata airbag recall was one of the largest in United States history. Millions of defective airbags were recalled due to serious injuries. Takata isn’t the only manufacturer who has made defective airbags. Whoever’s responsible, you can count on us to fight for your rights.
What makes these cases so complicated in Texas?
You might think your defective airbag case would be straightforward. A company made or improperly installed a product and you or a loved one got hurt. Many of these cases turn out to be very complicated however. Reasons why include:
- Airbag manufacturer denies doing anything wrong
- Different companies blame each other for defect and deny wrongdoing
- Airbag manufacturer hires attorneys specifically to deny legitimate claims
- Airbag manufacturer’s insurance company denies your claim
The stakes are often very high in defective airbag cases. Because these injuries often involve serious car accidents and large, multinational corporations, you can expect a tough legal fight. Some law firms avoid challenging cases, but we thrive on them because we strongly believe that companies should be held accountable for their actions.
